Player Reference Devices

Stores player data that can be sent to other devices and displayed to players.

You can use the Player Reference device to relay player statistics to other devices and even to other players. Statistics such as eliminations, deaths, or scores can be transmitted by the device when certain conditions are met. The Player Reference can also project a hologram of the player and display text that can be altered in various positions and curvatures.

Channels

When one device needs to "talk" to another device, it does so by transmitting a signal on a specific channel. The receiving device needs to be set up to receive the signal on the same channel.

A channel is identified by a number, and channel numbers are customized for a device under the option that uses the channel. Most devices will also pass the identity of the player who triggered the device with the signal.

This device has receivers that perform a variety of functions when receiving a signal over a channel. Also, this device can transmit signals when certain conditions are met.

Receivers

Receivers listen for a channel and perform an action when they hear any device (including themselves) send a signal on that channel.
